Love My 50-500mm

Fileboy, B&H Photo
20 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I have used this lens for everything from nature to modeling shoots. It's very sharp and in AF-C mode is great for action shots. One drawback is the weight, the thing is built as solid as a brick. I like to shoot hand held and this makes for a long day holding this lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Difficult to Clean, Heavy, Lens Creep

Surprising detail with this lens.

  • Summary: This is an impressive lens at less than half the cost of the Nikon offering. I take a lot of cityscape photos and I'm several miles from the subject, yet when properly focused, this lens captures details of signs on the highway and the structures of the buildings are clear and crisp.

Great Lens

StephenR, B&H Photo
22 August 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is great for wildlife photography. The ability to get up and close to your subject at the wide range of this lens is great, and being able to really reach out there on the telephoto end is great. It's a lens that you can keep on your camera and cover just about any situation.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Lens Creep

Sigma 50-500mm

Keith33, B&H Photo
13 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I have looked for a long time, to find a lens that will work for most of the pictures that I do with out changing all the time. I have had this lens for couple of weeks. It is so awesome, I shoot baseball and a lot of different activities. I believe. This is one of the most usable lens I have.

Another great lens from Sigma

Black Russian, B&H Photo
6 July 2014
  • Excerpt: So far I used it to shoot parade, wedding, surprise engagement, and football game. Image quality is about 95% of Canon's 100-400 L series lens. Unless you're shooting for National Geographic, it won't be obvious for your clients, but extra zoom on both ends will be.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Huge zoom range, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Lens Creep

Fabulous nature lens

at 1/10th the cost, worth it

Maeryk, Amazon
15 June 2014
  • Summary: This lens is one 0 less than equivalent red-ring lenses of the same length. I've been using it for over a year now, and I'm QUITE happy with my purchase. Now, this is a 500mm lens. Handholding it is like handholding a small telescope.

Outstanding Lens

Oleg M, Amazon
11 June 2014
  • Summary: I was looking for a long telephoto lens to use with my Sony E-mount cameras (A6000 and A7r), and looks like only Sigma makes those for Sony stabilized (A-mount). The Sony 70-400 is not stabilized relying on the A-mount cameras IBIS, Tamron simply cripples their A-mount lenses by disabling the...

This Is A Great Bargain Lens

John M. Palamaro, Amazon
9 June 2014
  • Summary: As a Nikon buff I've not been sufficiently motivated to pay Nikon's dollars for a great zoom, telephoto. This Sigma, affectionately called the 'Bigma' is indeed a big, heavy lens. I'm able to shoot hand-held with my 800E, but would not like to have to do it all day.
